in an earlier thread today, the op described arriving early at an empty restaurant, with no reservation. the hostess swore the place would be full in 20 minutes and tried to seat them at a high-top in the lounge. so, they left and ate elsewhere.
how important is your table to your dinner? i understand not wanting to sit near the kitchen or bathroom doors. lots of folks don't like sitting near waiter stations.
once i asked to change tables at lunch because the july sun was broiling me through the waterfront windows.
but to me, the restaurant matters more than the seat.
what about you ?
